An evening of sweeping Americana blues, country and rockabilly.

Rachael Brady and The Moonshine Special embody the sex appeal, rebellious spirit and wild energy of rockabilly icons like Wanda Jackson, Brenda Lee and Patsy Cline.

One of the Blue Mountains’ most talented singers, Brady is a frontwoman like few others: a vocal and emotional powerhouse whose intimate entanglement with each tale of love, lust or woe is captivatingly real.  

Vivacious, funny, incandescent and with an enormous voice that arrests the ear, she is artfully buoyed along by her troupe of accomplished players.

Be held captive by tales of train wrecks, funereal lullabies and love gone, gone, gone as they offer up an assemblage of nostalgia-laden, rockabilly, alt-country-noir originals in addition to a handful of obscure covers from the 20s to the 50s that pay homage to the roots of their original sound - tunes from artists like Johnny Cash, Patsy Cline and the Kirby Sisters.  

Folks'll laugh, folks'll cry but above all, they'll dance – Covid restrictions permitting!


Wanderlust Concert Series

Inspire your wanderlust through the world of music when Blue Mountains Theatre transports you to faraway and exotic places with the Wanderlust Concert Series.

Over seven magical Friday nights, these extraordinary concerts explore ancient music traditions melded with contemporary influences from across the globe. 

Our musical voyage starts with modern-pop explorations of Indigenous identity; dances joyously through the dynamic rhythms of Spanish Flamenco, Balkan Gypsy and Afro-Cuban Rumba past and present; detours through mystical ancient Malta; swings through rockabilly Americana; and ends with a mesmerising fusion of East-meets-West Persian jazz.  

Join us for one, some, or all of these special events, and strap in for a thrilling and uplifting adventure of sound commencing February 2021.

The Wanderlust Concert Series is supported by Live Music Australia - an Australian Government initiative
